About Lista

This long, flat peninsula has a series of points, reefs and sandy bays along the southern aspect, exposed to any passing North Sea swell. The beaches have fun, peaky waves perfect for beginners. The points are bouldery, predominantly right breaking, including a wrapping, walling right close to the northern side of the of the harbour entrance at Vestbygd, plus a faster right just to the north of the harbour wall. Both break over boulders.
